Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said whoever involved in beating up Navy officer Wasif Ahmed will face legal action.

He came up with the comment while talking to journalists at his Dhanmondi residence in the capital on Monday.

Earlier, Wasif filed a case with Dhanmondi Police Station naming four accused including Irfan Selim, 37, and two to three unnamed persons for assaulting him and his wife on Sunday night.

The other three named accused are AB Siddique Dipu, 45, Md Zahid, 35, and Md Mizanur Rahman, 30.

According to the case statement, a private car hit Lt Wasif's motorcycle in Dhanmondi as they were going to Dhaka Cantonment from Nilkhet around 7:45pm.

Some people came out of the car and verbally abused him and his wife and left the place.

When the car stopped at a nearby signal, Lt Wasif knocked the window of the car and introduced himself, after which the passengers got off the car again.

They physically attacked Lt Wasif and immediately went away, leaving the car behind, the case statement said.

On duty police rescued Lt Wasif and detained the driver along with the car.
